Only Lady Gaga rushed to help a man who fell on the Oscars red carpet

Lady Gaga not only sang at the 2023 Academy Awards, but she also came to the rescue on the red carpet. On March 12, Gaga was walking down the champagne-colored carpet at the Academy Awards when a photographer passed by her and fell to the ground on his back. As she heard the ruckus, she instantly turned around — in a floor-length Versace gown and heels — and ran to rescue the unknown man, who was happily alright and got back up.

Fans complimented Gaga for her generosity and quick reflex to help people in Twitter comments, with one person describing her as having “real human decency” and another dubbing her “the Mother Teresa” of the music business. Another tweet emphasized how Gaga was the only one who went out of her way to assist the photographer. “Notice how she didn’t even think about it—it was instinct to help him; she’s just truly kind and caring,” remarked another fan. Even Dove’s Twitter account (yep, the soap company) couldn’t stop gushing about Gaga, responding with love and crying emojis.

This isn’t the first time Gaga has been commended for her generosity. Gaga made news at the 2022 Oscars when she presented Best Picture with Liza Minnelli, who stayed sitting in a wheelchair for a rare public appearance. Fans applauded her for being so kind to the renowned performer, moving aside to let Minnelli bask in the standing ovation before gently guiding her as they sang. Gaga was even overheard gently telling her, “I got you,” to which she replied, “I know, thank you.”

Only a week later, at the 2022 Grammys, Gaga dropped down on the floor to assist SZA after the long train of her dress became entangled in her crutches, before bringing the train up the stage to claim her Award. Making the occasion even sweeter, SZA won Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for her Doja Cat collaboration “Kiss Me More” over Gaga and Tony Bennett’s duet “I Get a Kick Out of You,” but it didn’t matter to the 13-time Grammy winner.

Maybe Gaga’s statements on the red carpet impacted her surprising last-minute Oscars participation. Instead of a presenter, the singer began her performance of Top Gun: Maverick’s Best Original Song nominee “Hold My Hand” by describing the song’s influences and alluding to kindness. “We need a lot of love to go through this life, and we all need a hero every once in a while,” she explained. “Heroes might be found in unexpected places, but you can discover that you can be your own hero even if you feel shattered within.”
